Bennet Statement on Testimony By Dr. Ford And Judge Kavanaugh

Washington, D.C. – Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet today issued the below statement following Dr. Ford and Judge Kavanaugh’s testimonies:

“A hearing is neither a trial nor an investigation. Dr. Ford has made clear in compelling testimony that she is 100% certain Judge Kavanaugh assaulted her. Judge Kavanaugh denies this. Before we vote on a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court, the FBI should investigate the underlying facts of the dispute. If Leader McConnell can hold open a Supreme Court vacancy for more than 400 days, the FBI can surely spend the time required for a formal investigation.”
